rx is a command-line tool that makes it easy to set up, use, and share a remote environment while letting you continue to use all of your favorite local tools.

To get started, check out installation or getting started sections.


Feel free to file an issue if you have any questions or problems!

Current limitations

  • All commands are executed under Bash.
  • Bash will grab shell redirects, pipes, and so on before they can be passed to rx. Basically, if you’re using a non-alphanumeric character, it will probably work better if you wrap the line in single quotes, e.g.: rx 'cat f | head'.
